The time change.
I struggle when they take that hour in the Spring. I need to see the sunshine to lift my mood especially when I am not running many miles. Due to the weather and flooding over the weekend I was able to REST. Not really willingly but I did take off two WHOLE days from running. I know that my body needs to rest after a race but I didn't at all race the Greenway Trail 50k that I completed. I simply enjoyed it, experinced it, had fun with it. So, my toes aside, I didn't really feel like I need to rest. Of course all that would be
excuses reasons why I am trying to justify not taking more time off when I know that to build a body, rest is one of those building blocks.
But today I decided that if the sun was finally back at it's job of shining, I was going to get back to running, slowly. That is what littlest and I did this morning. A slow short wake up jog.
We enjoyed the sun coming over the ridgeline as we finished.
Oh, I enjoyed it...
...because littlest was fast asleep by then.
I must have bored him to sleep because I was playing tour guide as we ran.
I pointed out all the wild life and changes in the scenery from the receded flood waters while we cruised along.
I guess I can check tour guide off potential fall back jobs!
